Having a weight loss goal is a surefire way to get and stay motivated. It could be losing a certain amount of weight. It could be to look better. Etc. But, the problem that many people go through is not in setting the goal, it’s with having a solid plan in place to reach that goal successfully. Well, there is one amazing diet trick that I STRONGLY recommend you include in your plan to ensure success! To learn what this trick, continue reading!
You see, the most important step for getting and staying in shape and great health is proper nutrition. It doesn’t matter how many supplements you take, how awesome your exercise sessions are, etc. If what you are eating is not in check, then you are going to have a very difficult time trying to reach your weight loss goal.
So, if nutrition is the most important step for getting and staying in shape, then I guess that would mean that within nutrition lies the amazing diet trick to help you succeed faster, right? Yes indeed!
The amazing diet trick that I highly recommend you do is a mental shift. The mental shift is instead of FOCUSING on eating to satisfy your hunger, FOCUS on eating to satisfy your metabolism!
Let me explain…
Focusing on eating to satisfy your hunger means that you will simply eat meals in a way to do one thing, and one thing only, and that is to satisfy your hunger. Of course since you are dieting, you’ll make sure that what you are eating is pretty much healthy. This could work. But, with the way foods are nowadays (processed, loaded in sodium, HIDDEN BAD NUTRIENTS, tricky labels, etc.), it’s going to be very difficult.
Now, if you shift your focus around and start eating in a way to satisfy (in other words, BOOST) your metabolism, you would be absolutely SHOCKED at how faster you’ll lose weight and improve many other areas of your body (muscle gain, fat loss, losing inches, etc.). And this is because your metabolism is your bodies fat burning engine. The slower it runs, the slower you’ll lose weight. The faster it runs, the faster you’ll lose weight.
Now don’t get me wrong here, you will still be eating meals that will satisfy you, but it’s just that you won’t be FOCUSING on eating to satisfy your hunger.
So how do you do this?
Well, to shift your approach to dieting by eating in a way to skyrocket your metabolism is not as difficult as it sounds. Doing this means eating more often throughout the day, eating smaller meals instead of HUGE meals, calorie shifting (learn more about shifting calories HERE), adding spices to your meals that increases the metabolism (such as cinnamon and cayenne pepper), eating darker green veggies, eating foods with lots of antioxidants, and more!
So now when you eat, it should now switch from “boy I sure am hungry, let me get something to eat” to “okay, it’s time to fire up my bodies fat burning engine, let me get my next power meal!”
